Today we meet Guillaume Bouvet at Lyon, in France.
He is a custom-made furniture designer, working with wood.
He will give us an essential lesson for any industrial designer.

If you love working with wood, and designing furniture, you might want to see that. 🙂

 
I remember, when I was a student in my design school,
most students only rely on Google to do their research.
 
To find inspiration, ideas… they look at some articles, facts and statistics written by journalist, experts, bloggers, or influencers…
 
That’s great!
 
But, they never take the iniative to talk to the potential users of the product.
Imagine a waiter getting an order asking to anyone except the customer. Haha.
 
“If you want to create a relevant product, learn how to ask questions to the right person.”
 
Guillaume is a friend of my friend.
That’s how I’ve just met him during a business mastermind. (Networking matters)
This is the first time I do have this opportunity to talk with such a talented custom-made furniture designer.
 
It was a great pleasure to chit chat with him around the chimney and a glass of wine. 🙂

I hope you will enjoy as much as I did !
Have a super nice day !
 
Cheers,
Chou-Tac
